Police investigating a number of bike thefts across Portsmouth have made three arrests after early morning search

Officers investigating bike theft in Portsmouth have made three arrests this morning (Monday 27 June)


Our Portsmouth Central Neighbourhood Policing Team have arrested two 17-year-old boys and a 20-year-old man, all from Portsmouth, on suspicion of conspiracy to steal.


The arrests are part of our enquiries into the theft of bikes, e-bikes and scooters, thought to be worth tens of thousands of pounds, in the city.


All three people remain in custody at the current time.


As a result of ongoing enquiries we have recovered this bike (pictured) and are hoping to return it to its rightful owner.
